Nectarine Cake


I made this duirng my recent vacation as there was an abundance of  Nectarines in Victoria Market and they were going cheap.  Nectarines can be pretty expensive in Malaysia and I took the opportunity to bake this for tea.  This cake tasted best served warm, soft and moist with a crunchy crust coupled with a slightly tangy taste of lemon.
